For those lap steelers who haven't seen my twenty other posts about it! Laughing

I am the subject of a one-page profile by Bill Milkowski in June's issue (Diana Krall on cover). I guess the cool part is that only one other steel player has been featured (Robert Randolph) and I am the first of what I hope will be many lap steel players.

Thanks to all for the support! It's my hope to be able to continue making recordings like this. It's been a real learning experience for me and I hope to continue to improve on it.

Ya, Mike ! It doesn't get much cooler than Downbeat. And in a world where albums get produced, released and then disappear as fast as we can turn around, I figure STEELONIOUS is going to have a pretty long shelf-life. Too unique to ever be ignored. And it's STILL on perma-loop in my car!

Great Job Mike.

Ouch they were pretty ruthless with Buddy considering how unbelievably awesome his Steel Guitar Jazz album is.

Perfect! Well deserved. When I'm not listening to pod casts, I'm listening to Steelonius.
